This is Bennett College for Women, a finishing school in Milbrook NY built in the 1890's and later on bankrupted and closed down in 1978.Because of land disputes and other problems, the building has not been torn down or sold and so it just sits there begging to be explored. It is simply an amazing building and the one day of shooting here was not even close to the ammount of time it would take to capture this site in the way it deserves. I have recently begun testing out my abandoned places photography skills and I have to say I absolutely love this type of photography, however in my next post I got to combine it with my passion, shooting portraits. If you are interested in learning more about this amazing site search wikipedia for Bennett College for Women or google it to find more photographs.
